Ripe have announced the release of their second studio album, Bright Blues, arriving via Glassnote Records on Friday, March 10, 2023. Pre-orders/pre-saves are available now.
Bright Blues sees the alternative-pop band pushing their already buoyant sound towards new heights with sleek grooves, bold melodies, and an all-encompassing approach that truly showcases the full scope of their wide-ranging musical vision. Highlights include such recently released tracks as “Noise in the Forest“ and “Settling,” the latter of which was greeted by applause from Melodic Magazine, which wrote “A jubilant display of horns and guitar, ‘Settling’ attempts to push away restrictive thoughts or feelings. The track is all about living a fulfilling life, not settling or stopping for anyone who gets in your way.” “Settling” arrived alongside an official music video streaming now via YouTube. In addition, Ripe recently shared a stripped-down acoustic rendition of “Settling,” streaming now. “Settling” is seeing a lot of early success at radio with the song cracking the Top 15 at SiriusXM’s Alt Nation and being featured on its “Critical Cut” list. It’s also Top 15 at AAA and is Top 25 at Alt Mediabase with over 16k spins and over 15 million impressions.
